The built-in 2D graphics accelerator ensures that the display of on-screen graphics is in high quality true color.

“During the design stage of the TAHOMA series, it was our intention that once the platform was established, it would allow us to rapidly create new products,” said Thomas Tang, President of Apantac. “When we make an improvement or add a new feature it carries through to the whole platform, therefore every model and series of Multiviewers benefits. This is evident by the four new Multiviewer series’ and 30 new individual models that will be showcased at NAB 2010.”
The TAHOMA platform of Multiviewers is well suited for a wide variety of small and large-scale installations, mobile vans, master control rooms, production studios, command and control, digital signage, medical imaging, distance educations, government and many other broadcast and professional audio visual applications.
